Economists and criminologists have very different approaches to research and different political views, but they both generally find benefits from gun ownership,” Lott told Townhall in an email. “Economists, on the whole, were much more likely than criminologists to believe that there are benefits from gun ownership. By a factor of 12-to-1, economists believe that permitted concealed handguns reduce rather than increase murder rates. Despite their differences, still criminologists also believe this by a factor of just 2-to-1.”
Perhaps surveys such as this will help Americans take a level-headed approach to gun control in the future.
No. It won’t help Americans take a level-headed approach to gun control. This is because anti-gun people have never been “level-headed”. If they had the capacity to be level-headed they wouldn’t have been anti-gun to begin with and they wouldn’t have to lie to gain traction.
We must continue to fight them culturally and politically until they become as irrelevant as the KKK which they so closely resemble.
